Legendary burlesque star Dita Von Teese embodies all things glamour, elegance, and mystery through her dancing, costumes, and overall pin-up persona — which is precisely why we jumped at the news that Ms. Von Teese has just launched her signature, self-named perfume in the U.S. for the first time. Showcased in a sensual, onyx bottle with a vintage pump, her debut scent has already received eau de parfum honors such as the German Fragrance Foundation Duft Star Award for Best Female Lifestyle Fragrance.

Dita Von Teese features a lush blend of peonies, Bourbon pepper, jasmine, and a closing note of sandalwood, among a handful of other attributing scents. "I wanted to do something very sensual, sleek and simple that speaks of wanting to be a grown-up, sophisticated woman who is in charge of her life," described Von Teese.

And in charge of her life, she most definitely is. Pick up Dita Von Teese at either of Fred Segal's two California locations, and get your glam on.
